Chocolate Stout Hot Chocolate

I've posted a lot of Hot Chocolate recipes over the years, but here's a Hot Chocolate Recipe that adds Chocolate Stout. And, before you ask, yes, you can taste it!

With all the microbreweries--and larger breweries- around, there are lots of choices of Chocolate Stouts. A few Chocolate Stouts: Rogue Chocolate Stout, Ass Kisser Chocolate Box Dark Oatmeal Stout, Clown Shoes Chocolate Sombrero, Copper Kettle Mexican Chocolate Stout, Salted Belgian Chocolate Stout, Bison Chocolate Stout, Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout, Young's Double Chocolate Stout. Be sure and check with your local brewery to see if they make a chocolate stout. As with many smaller breweries, the selection varies with the season. As always, the flavor of this Stout Hot Chocolate will change with the chocolate stout you choose, as well as the chocolate.
